Overall Rating:
I chose this for playability, range of tones, and aesthetics. For the price, it's comparable to many Gibsons and simply played and sounded better than any of them... not to mention it's simply gorgeous.
Model Year: 2004
Price: $2595.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Chuck Levin's Music Center
Features:
This is a US made guitar of impeccable fit and finish. The workmanship, features, and setup were all first-rate. The Brazilian Limited is similar to the Custom 22 "10" top with the addition of nickel-steel pickup covers and hardware, a Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard and headstock overlay (and truss rod cover) and is signed and numbered by PRS.
Playability:
The action is excellent. The rosewood fingerboard is silky smooth and produces excellent tone.
Sound Quality:
I play this through a number of amps. Primarily, I use it through a Marshall AS50R with a Line 6 PodXT modeller. This allows me to use both my Taylor Acoustic and PRS electric through the same while achieving a huge variety of sounds. The electronics are excellent. The pickups have a great sound and the 5-position switch allows for a range between a strat and an LP sound with a few variations.
Durability:
So far, so good.
